7 laws of yoga

explored the theory and philosophy of yoga.

Law of Pure Potentiality:

-The silent ever present witness is your true self.
-This law reminds us that every movement emerges from the silent field of infinite possibility.
-Remain in a state of mindful witnessing cultivation the experience of having your awareness in a non-localized domain of pure potentiality.

 every day you should :
1. cultivate stillness in your body and mind- meditation- allows one to learn and directly experience the field of pure awareness where everything is inseparably connected with everything else. ( WE ARE ALL CONNECTED REGARDLESS OF RACE)
2. shift into a witnessing mode of awareness. Observe from the inner stillness of your soul the dynamic of activity of the world. Communicate with nature and witness the intelligence within every living thing. This will allow joy and reverence for the eternal movement of life in all its manifestation. ( appreciation of others will provide you with ultimate joy)
3. Practice non judgement: remind yourself that self acceptance is the source and goal of yoga. while one makes judgements they create turbulence in the internal dialogues- constricting the flow of positive energy ( releasing yourself from judging others physics will allow you to stay wholesome and positive)

Om Bhavam Namah
"I am absolute existence"

- The Law of Giving and Receiving:

-the universe operates through dynamic exchange.
your mind is dynamically interacting with the mind of the cosmos.
-The harmonious exchange between your physical body and the physical universe and between your personal mind and the collective mind is expressed as the Law of Giving and Receiving.
-One must be open to giving and receiving in order to keep the life force circulating within you.
-The intention:  create happiness for the giver and the receiver, happiness is life-supporting and life-sustaining.

1. Anytime throughout the day that you feel resistance in your body because things are not going the way you think they should, bring your attention to your breath and use it to regain your sense of effortless receiving and releasing.
 2.Celebrate your physical manifestation that enables your soul to express its meaning and purpose in life. Celebrate the very improbability of your existence.
 3.You will find that through this subtle shift in your attitude, challenging postures are more easily achieved.

Om Vardhanam Namah
"I am the nourisher of the universe" 

-The Law of Karma (or Cause and Effect)

-Every action we take generates a force of energy that returns to us in kind—as we sow, so we reap.
-Karma implies the action of conscious choice making for we are all infinite choice makers. 
-Whether you like it or not, everything that is happening at this moment is a result of the choices you’ve made in the past
-Karma presents itself in your present by reminding you of your past.
-1. The best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present.
2. Will this choice bring comfort?”
3.Then listen to your heart for guidance and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort.

Om Kriyam Namah
My actions are aligned with cosmic law

- The Law of Least Effort 
nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease.
 -you can make use of the Law of Least Effort by minimizing your effort and maximizing your effect.
*Stated simply, the Law of Least Effort tells us that we can do less and accomplish more.
 -In yoga, the more you are able to embrace rather than fight your limitations and vulnerabilities, the less limits they hold and the more balance and energy you experience.

1.Practice acceptance.
In your daily life, practice accepting people as they are and circumstances as they occur, under- standing that every moment in your life is the conse- quence of every prior choice you’ve made.  
2. take responsibility for the challenge you are facing.

Remember that every challenge is an opportu- nity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunity allows you to take this moment and transform it for greater benefit. 
3.Establish your awareness in defenselessness.
 Do not waste your life energy defending your point of view or attempting to convince others. Remain open to all points of view without rigidly attaching yourself to any one of them.

remember the Law of Least Effort. Introduce the mantra that resonates with the principle that you can accomplish more by doing less if you are not wasting energy by struggling and straining....

Om Daksham Namah
My actions achieve maximal benefit with minimal effort 

-The Law of Intention and Desire:

-based upon the recognition that at the level of the quantum field there is nothing other than energy and information.
 The ancient yogic sages had an expression for this realization, “Tat Tvam Asi,” which translates as, “I am that, you are that, all this is that, and that’s all there is.”

This influence is activated by two qualities inherent in consciousness: attention and intention. Attention enlivens while intention transforms. 

-According to ancient yogic principles, your inten- tion has organizing power.

1. Be clear about your intentions and desires.
-When you take the time to document what you desire in your heart and mind, you accelerate the process of manifesting your desires in the world.

2.Even as you bring your intentions and desires into conscious awareness, surrender the outcome to nature.

3.Remind yourself to practice present moment awareness in all your actions.
-being in the moment empowers your most cherished intentions and desires.

Om Ritam Namah
My intentions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence 

-Law of Detachment.
- give up your attachment to outcomes.
-Attachment is based on fear and insecurity.

When you forget that the only genuine source of security is your true self, you begin believing that you need something outside yourself in order to be happy.

Practicing detachment and embracing uncertainty, you relinquish your need to hold on to the past, which is the only thing that is known.

Applied to your practice of yoga, the Law of Detach ment encourages you to relinquish your attachment to an idealized pose( equality) . Rather than seeking only to achieve the perfect posture, have the intention for your practice to awaken deeper and more expanded levels of awareness within you.  

yoga is a system of mindful surrender.    

1. Detachment and flexibility go hand in hand. Attach- ment breeds rigidity. Commit not to rigidly impose your ideas of how things should be. Allow yourself and those around you the freedom to be natural. 
2.Embrace uncertainty as an essential ingredient of your experience and watch how creative solutions to problems spontaneously emerge out of chaos.
3. Surrender to the field of pure potentiality.

Om Anandham Namah
My actions are blissfully free from attachment to outcome 

Law of Dharma -Purpose in Life-
-every sentient being has a purpose in life.
-To be in dharma, your life force must flow effortlessly without interference.
------3 rules to accompanying Dharma: 
1.your ultimate purpose is to discover your higher Self. Pursue the goddess inside you that wants to express the sacred purpose for which you were born.
 2. acknowledge and express your unique talents. Take the time to honor your innate gifts
 -When you are in the flow of your dharma, expressing your unique talents, time loses its hold on you and you enter into timeless awareness.
 3.serve others.

The inner dialogue of a person in his or her dharma is, “How can I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers to these questions will allow you to serve your fellow human beings with love and compassion. 


Om Varunam Namah
My life is in harmony with cosmic law
